Why Paul is proud to be a Melanoma Life Saver
“I decided to become a Melanoma Life Saver to help the researchers at MIA find a cure, I know that breakthroughs don’t happen overnight and that cures can only come from a commitment to research. I understand it takes time to carry out clinical trials to see if a potential treatment is both safe and effective,” said Paul.
Paul has been a kind supporter and volunteer with MIA since August 2013 after he lost his young wife Natalie to melanoma. Sitting alongside Natalie for many of her appointments, Paul was impressed by the passion and dedication of the doctors and trial nurses at MIA, who often went above and beyond in their care.
Paul became a Melanoma Life Saver a year ago and says he’s found giving monthly to be a satisfying way of giving. He has also found it a convenient way to give because it’s automatic and allows him to spread his contributions evenly over the year.
“I donate monthly because it helps me to manage financially, I have a house, and most of my money is tied up with my house, so giving on a monthly basis is convenient and helps me budget,” said Paul.
